Von Soden [AHW p. ") and compares Arabic $urn&. the Practical Vocabulary of Assur equates Ee xu-hu-uz with duQi~zti. 11. 16 upputu = Fe sig, "late grain". The meaning "late" is well established for both the Sumerian and Akkadian words, but whether this refers to a specific type of grain or any late grain is unclear from the Akkadian contextual passages.

GG] - Finally, the Presargonic evidence assembled by Yamamoto [1979, 19801 makes it probable that barley, emmer, and "wheat" were planted in the fall about the same time. The inference made by Landsberger [1949: 283 note 1161 from the Sumerian nomenclature of the eleventh Nippur month, Sabatu (written zfz-a and ziz-a-an), that emmer was normally S O ? in this month and reaped after the regular barley harvest in May-June, appears improbable.

In another text recording (probably) the payment of some type of rent [Thureau-Dangin 1903 no. 691, "white/brightW and "dark" types are subsumed, along with "gunida emmer" (zfz gG-NUNUZ) and wheat (GIG), as "wheat, emmer of the domain" (GIG zfz nfg-en-na).
